brat faster in the bidies of parents
and friends of 80 youths mounting
the highest pinnacle in youth, only to
move on again as relentless time car
ried them from youth into the world
where greater things await all de
pendent on their own initiative and
the training with which they were
credited during the evening.
A vast crowd packed the auditorium
many just to get a glimpse of th>
long line of seniors, growing serious
at their departure, as they marched on
the stage, wniie hundreds of olhcis
remained to see the high awards giv
en and to shower the graduates with
gifts and praise as they marched
down to give away to a using class
Considering the vast size of the
crowd it was unusually behaved, may
haps because it was impressed by tic
ceremony and the triumphant youth,
a little sad even in their triumph. Fa
vorites winning awards broke the
*oi II and gave opportunity for rout
ing cheers as boys and giiir, movmt
forward to receive hpnors that for the
moment they would rot trade' i; r

just a name.
Mrs. St»»r with Dellinger left Del

was that his identification seemed

Whether or not the latest story to

is not known.
Auto Plunges Over
Brushy Creek Bridge
A Chevrolet coupe plugged 18 feet
or more from the temporary bridge
at Brushy creek Sunday afternoon
about 5 o’clock an reports had it that
the occupants were seriously injure*)
and rushed to the local hospital for
treatment, but no patients arr-red
there from this accident. It could net
be learned how the accident happened,
but the car broke through the side
rails and landed on its radiator in the
sand 18 feet below, being badly dam
aged. A small child was the only wit
ness and she did not know the names
of the occupants. One report had it
that the car was knocked from the
bridge by a jitney but this is denied at
the bus headquarters. If the occupant s
were injured, their injuries were not
serious enough to take them to th
hospital, but their escape from death
was nothing short of a miracle.
GOOD “FIRST MONDAY”
GATHERING IN SHELBY
Wuh the primary still of tonversa
tional interest “first Monday” today
brought a large number of folks to
Shelby.' Both county boards wore in
regular monthly session while the
county coaurt docket before .fudge
Mull moved back t6 the old-time
heavy docket order.
For June 15
Gat hi ring at Cleveland Springs of
Neighboring Luncheon Clubs is
Planned for Mid-Month.
The proposed gathering at Cleve
land Springs of all the luncheon clubs
in this section is now planned for June
15, according to J. C. Newton, secre
tary of the Shelby chamber of com
merce, who is behind the movement
originated in Gastonia.
Mr. Newton has mailed out invita
tions, to commerce secretaries and
luncheon club heads in ail neighboring
towns and cities asking if the date
considered will be satisfactory with
them. Provided this date is not suit
able another date may be selected.
As the plan goes rlow member-! of
luncheon clubs and leading business
men of Gastonia, Lincolnton, Kings
mountain, Belmont, Clover, Fores;
City and Rutherfordton w ill gather at
the big resort park here during that
afternoon for a general get-togeth
er with the purpose of creating a
closer relationship between the town-*
of the section. There will be no form
al program other than a general plan
of entertainment and none of the vis
itors will be under obligations.
The entertainment features include
golf, swimming and horseshoes in the
afternoon followed by a big banquet
or barbecue in the evening. In order
to eliminate any suggestion of obliga
nry design the banquet will be a
“dutch affair” and considering the
size of the proposed gathering the
cost per plate should be very reason
able. The play facilities will be i or
dered free of charge! by the local
Chamber of Commerce and Alfred P.
Marshall of Cleveland Springs Es
Should the half day vacation ane
get-together prove a success, as is
expected, the spring vacation day for
business leaders of the section will
likely be made an annual occasion.
For New Schools
To Be Erected
With the probability of several
new schools the local school board has
been faced with the problem of nam -
ing the various buildings. Practically
all of the streets in Shelby, a town
named for a Revolutionary war hcto,
are named for leaders in the fight fu*
independence and schools already
named are named by the streets,
which makes it seem likely that the
other schools will be so named.
A patron of the city school sj s
tem has suggested that Central ele
mentary school be called Sumter
school; that north Shelby be cail.'d
the Washington school and thai Fn-t
side be called the Jefferson school.
This would give all the schools Re-, o
lutionary names and also would coin
cide with the street on which, or liesr
which the schools are located.

MIL TENT MEEIING
Thrc? Thousand People Hear Wall
Sunday Night. 1.000 Ask For
Prayer So Far in Revival.
Sunday night witnessed a record
Crowd at the Wall tent revival on S.
LaFayette street with 3,000 present
to hear Dr. Wall in a most fervent and
earnest discourse on “Christ Walking
Amidst Churches." According to Pi.
Wall, fully 1.000 have gone forward
for prayer since the meeting began
Sunday night two weeks ago. Dr. Wall
in his sermon has been directing Ids
sermons heretofore to the back-sliding
Christians and indifferent churco
members ami these sermons have had
a telling effect . During the last three
nights of tiie services there have
been 50 or more conversions. Thrsc
names have been taken and will be
turned over to the churches of the
choice of the converted and will be
closely followed up. Dr, Wall would
have it understood that the meeting is
not strictly a Baptist revival, but the
main purpose is for soul-winning and
the churches of other faith will be
furnished the names of the converted
who prefer other than Baptist.
The crowd Sunday night was veiy
inspiring. Hundreds could not get un
der the big canvas but sat beyond the
wings of the tent within ear-shoe of
the speaker and the attention was
perfect. There will be a Monday night
service beginning ;.t the usual hour
of 7:45 and each night until next Sun
day evening when the meeting will
come to a close. Hereafter Dr. WaL'
will make a special effort in his ser
mons to reach the lost. Special dele
gations will come each night from suv
rounding churches and space will he
reserved in the large tent io properly
and comfortably seat the visitors.
The music continues a special feature
of the revival. Last night Dr. Wall
says he never heard such fine gospel
singing, augmented by the Men’s chor
us of the First Baptist church. This
chorus sang in a most impressive and
appropriate manner "I Want mv Life
to Tell for Jesus." Rev. H. N. Me
Diarmid of the Presbyterian ‘church
has suspended his Sunday night serv
ices out of courtesy for the tent revi
val and his congregation worshipped
there in large number Sunday night
and will be on hand again next Sun
day night at the closing hour.
Sandy Plains church is invited for
Tuesday night when Dr. Wall’s sub
ject will be the "Three Greatest
Tragedies”. Wednesday night his sub
ject will be "The Two Ways” with
New Prospect congregation earning.
Further subjects will be announced
later in the week. New Hope and Pat
terson Springs come Thursday night.
Pleasant Grove on Friday and Zion
and Zoar on Saturday night.

The primary of Saturday was otic
of unusual interest. Voting was heavy
throughout the day and by early ev
ening crowds began gathering for the
reiurns. The big bulletin board in
front of The Star office, anti tabulat
ed through the courtesy of The Star
Publishing comnany. was the center
tif attraction. Hundreds jammed the
street and court square opposite early
in the night, while several hundred
struck it through for late returns aft

The First Winners.
I he survey today—minus the offi
cial ballot—reveals the following vie*
j tories: H. T. Fulton, is the Democrat
; ic nominee for state senate. Fulton
secured 2,967 votes; Peyton McSwain
2,244 and C. J. Woodson 172.
B. T. Falls, Shelby attorney, will re

P. Cleveland Gardner deposed the
present county soTTcitor, Charles A.
Only one change was made on the
county commission board, the new
nominees being: A. E. Cline, W. \V.
Washburn and Sam C. Lattimor^. ’I he
victorious school board was W. D.
Lackey, J. L. Hord, W. A. Rid^nhour,
C. D. Forney and Ivey Willis.
Logan Holds Lead.
In the offices where a second pri
mary seems likely Sheriff Hugh A.
Logan holds the better lend. In the
sheriff's race Logan received I;
E. W. Dixon, 1607, and E. A. Wei linen
For clerk of court A. M. Haiv.G-k
led his nearest opponent, George D.
-Washburn by only a few votes. Ham
rick received, by unofficial tabluutian
2,281, and Washburn was given 2,27?.
Grover Rollins, third man in *he race,
received 1,071 votes.
The third race that must be decid
ed by a second primary is that of Su
perior court solicitor for the district
Late tabulations made at Hickory
show that Spurgeon Spurling ku, fol-'
lowed closely by Sam Erwin, jr., of
Murganton with third honors between
C. B. McBrayer, of Cleveland, and
Joe Murphy of Catawba. There wiH be |
a second primary between Erwin and
Spurling. Spurling and Erwin in both
made fine races here in McBrayer’s |
home county, early unofficial counts
showing Spurling leading in Cleveland
with McBrayer second and Erwin
third. Spurling was originally lrom:
this county while Erwin made a fine !
impression with voters in recent court
trails here. Regardless how the I
second primary goes voters feel sure !
that an excellent and capable solicitor i
will be named.
Over Leads Slightly.
Senator Lee Slater Overman, return!
ed victorious over the state over Rob
ert R. Reynolds, fared none *00 well in
Cleveland county majority over his
young opponent. Overman, according
to incomplete returns, only had about
500 lead over Reynolds in the county.
Congressman Bulwinkle received a
landslide majority of around 1.000, or
more, votes over his opponent Dim
Records and tabulations- were net
available Monday morning for rued
commissioners and other offices.
W. D. Lackey Stars.
VV. D. Lackey, known as ‘ Sheriff
Dick” to Cleveland county, was the
high light, ns votes go, of Saturday’s
primary. Mr. Lackey, former sheriff
and mayor of Shelby, as a candidate
for the county school board I’d ihe
ticket with 4,809 votes.
In contests with only two candi
dates John P. Mull received the high
est vote with .1,489.

Some Predictions lTpset.
Several predictions turned in the
wrong manner, but not so nm y.
Voters usually predict according to
sentiment, although the happy me
dium usually makes a general pre
diction. If ihere were upsets—-that is
on majority predictions—they were In
Fulton’s majority lead over McSwaifc,
Gardner's defeat of Burrua, Newton’s
victory over Weathers, Washburn’s
close race against Hamrick, and La
gan’s heavy vote on a three-cornered
Early returns indicated that Logan
would have a majority over his two
opponents hut the count from Falls
ton with a heavy vote for Dixon eras
ed this probability. First precincts
heard from made a second primary for
register seeni likely, but the Kings
Mountain vote dethroned this likeli
hood. As later returns came in Ful
ton’s lead continued to increase stead
ily, although at the end McSwain had
a vote that was large enough to be
highly eom|limentary as was that cf
Horance Kennedy for legislature.
How They Fell.
Many of the precincts did not give
| in complete returns Saturday night
; on solicitor and other races and it wa?
| impossible as yet Monday morning
to carry a complete unofficial check
on anything except the general county
ticket. The official vote to be tendered
by the county election board was not
tabluated in time for this edition of
However, for the general infoima
tlon of thousands of Star readers, who
Saturday displayed their eager inter
est, the unofficial tabulation made by
reports to The Star Saturday night
are given below.
In some instances a check-up cr
better count may slightly change ihe
tabluation given out. Several totals
were derived from different reports
on the standing of Hamrick and
Washburn in the clerk of court rac«-,
hut the changes, whatever they may
he, will not he enough to nnme a vic
tor in the first primary. The tabula
tion below is not carried as accurate
and candidates who may receive less
—or more?—votes than the official
count should not feel hurt.
The county vote follows, in full but
not official, while the Superior court
solicitor’s, vote includes only about
two-thirds of the precincts:
